Description

  • Are you passionate about helping Vermont youth achieve success in their career, family, and community?
  • Have experience in case management, education, or as an adult learner yourself?
  • Have you worked in disenfranchised, historically underserved populations?
  • Looking to join a team who loves their work, a group of veteran colleagues who support you as much as you support your clients?

About the job:

Vermont Adult Learning is hiring an educational advisor to work with adult students (16+) as they build skills and pursue their high school diploma through an innovative and personalized learning approach.

This in-person role at our Rutland learning center involves meeting with students regularly to co-design their personalized education plan, advise them through the inevitable challenges and successes along the path to their diploma, and to ensure they have the transferable skills necessary upon graduation.

We have full-time work available, but we're open to creative possibilities with job-share or part-time hours depending on the fit of candidates who apply.

About you:

The ideal candidate will be a motivated self-starter who can learn from existing staff members but is also willing to roll up their sleeves, creating partnerships with community schools and agencies, asking for help when needed, and managing multiple priorities and program changes with patience and resilience.

If you have experience working with youth or adult learners, being an adult learner yourself, coaching or counseling, or other independent case management roles, you might be a great fit!
